Former Contractor - Warehouse Order Picker

I worked at Southern Wine & Spirits of America

Pros

During the holiday seasons (Oct, Nov, Dec, Jan), seasonal employees are hired and paid $20.00 hourly. If you worked a full shift on Saturdays, our supervisor allowed us to pick 2 alcohol beverages... (from a selection pallet) to take home. Best seasonal job I ever worked!!

Cons

On January 10th all seasonal workers are either laid off, hired permanent, or called back at a later time.

Advice to Management

Working with your management team back in 2013 as a warehouse order picker was a great experience for me. I hope nothing changed in 2017.

Current Employee - Outside Sales Representative

I have been working at Arnold Machinery full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Their Silver Service Policy gives customers a safety net to do business with them. You are empowered to make decisions and decisions are based on what is right. If a customer is unhappy with... something, you MUST ask them "what will it take to make you happy?" Then you do it. As long as it is legal and ethical, an employee does not have to worry about the cost to the company or getting fired. It has been proven year after year that customers usually only want what it is that will set them straight. No phone calls to managers or fear of being fired. It is a great feeling. Great benefits.

Cons

The only real con, if you can call it that, is if you are lazy, it is not for you. Sales is high pressure, but that is to be expected. The reward is great and the safety net means that no matter... what, you know that the customer will be taken care of. Period.

Advice to Management

I guess most time it is a pro because there is not micro management, but perhaps set a corporate procedure for work flow of new and used sales. They do very well but with any company there are... growing pains. Once we have enough people internally it should resolve.
